Children's Discovery Museum

Northern Bangkok

Learning is well-disguised as fun at this museum, open again after a lengthy renovation completed in 2019. The interactive exhibits range in topic from construction to culture, although we suspect most will be drawn to the Dino Detective Zone, where kids can dig in sand to find and reassemble dinosaur bones.

A government-issued ID (such as a passport) is required for entry.
